Free Books – 12 Contemporary Christian Romances

Posted November 18, 2017 by Phyllis Helton in Giveaways / 3 Comments

12 Contemporary Christian authors have joined together to offer their books for free until November 30, 2017. The caveat is that to get the book, you need to agree to receive their newsletters. There is not, however, any requirement for how long you stay subscribed. Their goal is not to have people subscribed who are not interested in their books. I have found that subscribing to newsletters like this is a great way to get to know whether or not you like an author’s writing.

To select your books from the giveaway, click here.  The links below will bring you to the books that you can purchase on Amazon with no obligation to sign up for the newsletters.  Some of the books are very short, others are full-length novels.  I have not read all of these and plan on downloading several.

Here are the books being offered:

Publication Date April 25, 2014
Genres: Clean Romance
Setting: Africa Contemporary
Written for: Adult
Pages: 98

Synopsis:

When Havyn Jessup agreed to join her church’s building trip, she had no idea the man who broke her heart was coming as well. The last thing she wants is to spend time with the now internationally famous actor, Levi Carter. Even if it is in Africa, where he might, if God had any sense of justice, be eaten, one tiny bite at a time, by a pride of hungry lions. Two whole weeks. She’d never survive that long.

Levi is elated to learn that Havyn will be joining the building team. He had planned to look her up just as soon as he got home to tell her what a fool he’d been. But there is no time like the present. And what better place to ensure she would hear him than when she was strapped in at thirty thousand feet above sea level? Two short weeks. Could he convince her he was a changed man in that amount of time?
